you know when you're when you are talking there are some of that our fleet center and you know our national track we are asked to be made to be doing this kind of don't. i think that's a serious problem for asked radix where there is certainly a problem how big it is again i go back to my previous answer that having a create prevalence estimation we don't know but even if we settle for a lower figure just for the sake of argument i'm not saying this is the actual budget for the sake of argument if ten percent. it was so important where do you stand for stand happens if then percent of all the medal winners it is a big problem moreland based on the way what we published is quite high the quote. is we don't know much about the the athletes compliance. the u.s.
treasury has released a declassified list of russia individuals as part of a sanctions law signed by donald trump in august the so-called kremlin list includes the names of one hundred fourteen politicians and nearly one hundred top business figures but the treasury denies those on the list are actually being sanctioned a short time ago i discussed it with artie's medina culture of. it is quite a big list with a lot of names that includes almost all top russian politicians and businessmen including prime minister dmitry me to be deforming minister sergey lavrov and russian ministers now in total there are one hundred fourteen politicians and ninety six a businessman those businessman whose fortune is all for one billion dollars and they've got business in europe or the united states are also according to the u.s. treasury department and the inner circle of the russian president now the publication as. saying sions bill which was signed by u.s.
president donald trump back in august last year but the u.s. treasury department denies that it is a sanctions list it is not a sanctions list and the inclusion of individuals or entities in this report does not and in no we should be interpreted to impose sanctions on those individuals or entities the u.s. ambassador to russia has already called for the russian side not to react emotionally to this publication the kremlin spokesperson said that this list does not represent anything in particular but they will still look into it a possible impact on the russian companies some other russian politicians have reacted quite certain caste sickly to this list they say that the u.s. intelligence is simply decided to include everyone from the kremlin phone book and want one high ranking official even said that this list is essentially a book of who with whom and the russian politics so the u.s. says it is not saying sions list but what could be the aim of such
a move otherwise. the kremlin list was drawn up as part of a new sanctions law signed by donald trump in the summer of last year i were the us president now says he does not intend to apply any new sanctions against russia and this has not gone down well with many democrats of course congress voted almost unanimously for the package of restrictions last year. but this legislation and its implementation deterring russian defense. really didn't come into power with a burning desire for some reason to help russia out by easing up on the sanctions against them sanctions on specific entities when vigils will not need to be imposed . president's talk about russia is so consistently mild. i join me live now political analyst john bolton is to take this discussion further john good to see you on the program today this whole the kremlin list why do you think washington decided to publish this list of names.
i think i think we're just seeing a ratcheting up of the psychological war of words and pressure it's a little bit of a variation on brink ship we call this bleak ship they're trying to make one side or the other blink and become too afraid or too nervous and they're actually trying to isolate president putin by terrorizing people who work in legitimate democratic positions inside the russian government john the russian president's spokesperson has dismissed this list as meaningless what did he mean by that. i think i would interpret that as saying that this list does not refer to any one who has violated any kind of financial rules or any kind of laws it is just a list of people who are considered to be influential and potentially very
useful to russian national interests and less than useful to american national interests which is the normal state of affairs when you have leading countries that disagree on certain issues and nothing more than that therefore meaningless in the sense of some kind of a punishment list now donald trump has said that he will not impose any further sanctions on russia why do you think he did sign the fresh batch last summer then of course still not implemented is it trump facing internal pressure do you think or what. but you you can say that again. you have to remember that donald trump is an outsider to the washington political swamp and in that swamp the alligators and this and the cynics and the sharks swimming around in that swamp include both democrats and republicans so donald trump
is facing a front battle against the democratic party and a rear guard action against the swamp dwelling republicans so he is facing a two front war inside his own capital city and that's the reason why donald trump has two very often signed off on measures to pluck kate his own party john i'm running out of time here but very quickly of course there are growing calls in europe to lift these sanctions and you think that could happen any time soon a lot of the complaints from europe centering around that of russian energy. but naturally the europeans are being made to suffer basically the washington is fighting its war against russia to the last european and destroying the european economy sanctioning russia and forcing the europeans to comply this will ultimately lead ultimately lead to a break in u.s.
european relations which would be a grievous grievous error to be made in washington political analyst john bolton is joining us live here on r.t. international thank you so much for your time and thank you for your insight thank you. but believe it or not fitness truckers have unexpectedly highlighted a major security flaw for military forces an australian student was able to discern the locations of secret military bases by simply looking at a global map indicating where people exercise the most elite the trinket investigates. did you know now anyone who's got an internet browser can locate even the most secret army bases around the world say journalists thanks to these little things so how come people are saying fitness trackers could have become the soldier's worst enemy look at this global heat map by a g.p.s. tracking company wherever it gets bright are the areas of the stronger apps most
active use some places seem totally black like of ghana's stand for instance but we know there are american soldiers and parts of it zoom in tot all the little bright dots is where sam must hang out or to be more precise exercise it was a twenty year old student who first noticed how easy it was to find the u.s. bases this particular track looks like it logs or break you or jogging routes i shouldn't be able to establish any pattern of life from this far away so that's a real threat which the pentagon's admitted while only a few years ago they were happy to distribute thousands of fit bits among staff by the way there must be a number of temporary or even permanent u.s. bases that we don't know about journalists have zoomed in on areas around mosul and iraq and roc-a in syria we're told uncle sam is there to train and
assist since the rest of iraq and syria are pretty much all black perhaps locals don't really have many of these devices so it's fair to assume that the bright spots are where americans train others and train themselves another journalist remembered this article and scrawled all the way to the capital of somalia some heavy jargon activity on the beach around to it looks like the reputed cia annex at mogadishu airport no one can say for sure all of this is correct but the. cern is out there u.s. troops security issues aside i was going to show you the koreas how's that for a contrast but even then pyongyang there are a couple of bright zigzags could it be mr kim enjoying a bit of western technology well i bet he'll never tell us we're back in just about .
what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. we somehow want to be rich. but you going to be for us this is what. the three of them can't be good. i'm interested always in the was a. question. of when else seemed wrong. but. just don't call. me if you get to shape out these days comes to absecon and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look
for common ground. twenty past the hour here in moscow thanks for joining us on. with russia as a presidential election is now not far off to you spoke to one of the more colorful candidates check out she's rather famous in russia for being a t.v. host father was the man petersburg and ultimately the man who brought vladimir putin into x. as she enjoyed a fairly gilded youth but got into politics ourself and twenty twelve joining russia and so you under the slogan vote for rather touchy subject at one point even threatening to take it as a personal attack i think it's a numbers ago you were taped having a building that. was right down which was
was that it was done by fayez so it's a criminal case and it was criminal report it says you all but old enough lady i think the way you criminal is you know it's unconstitutional to do this to discuss it and even to report it if you would show these on your t.v. i will write it don't last comments or and they will close it because. i won't do this but i'm just saying here we can discuss a lawful things i do well joining me now live in the studio now oksana boycott the host of our two years worlds apart of the one conducting the interview with presidential candidate. what did we see just what happened well it was always the end of the interview and much of the interview was about. a genius of checks favorite topics the lack of a why the shortage of freedoms in russia the inefficiency of our bureaucracy a lot of criticism of put in as well so it was fairly conventional what the what
you would expect from her but towards the end i asked her about. taped conversation that is making rounds on the russian internet when she was taped talking to her neighbors and discussing the schedule for a pair of works at her apartment block and she basically said to her neighbors that i don't care if your children die and the neighbors were asking about scheduling their work in a way that would allow their little kids have a nap during the day and she said i don't care what happens to your children i need to sleep till midday and then you'll kill the children die i couldn't care less about it why do you put she literally said why do you put the interest of the children above my interest and i think that that was a very revealing conversation about how a person who intends to run for presidency and i assume you would agree with me that presidents in bars a certain degree of concern for the people a certain degree of accommodation to you would do you know if you don't think you might you may have crossed the line i mean you know certainly a lot of politicians like to try and say my post in your life is private is it
possible you cross the line but also have posed no question a lot of politicians and he tried to make that case but i would argue i'm pretty sure that many people would agree with me that politicians are entitled to. different degree of privacy she was than down the consul i mean she wasn't discussing relationship with her husband something like that i wouldn't know that but she was. i think i think got conversation was very revealing in a way how that person would make decisions under stress how that person. you know assigns priorities when it comes to her own conference and discomfort of other people and i think all of those issues are relevant to the time you are talking about presidents and freshly in a country like russia because i think the reason why she didn't want to go into that because she understands full well that you can be you know a patriot liberal whatever but in this country we do assign certain protections to
develop the rebel groups and i think it's by what you say that you know if you get into the world of politics you're going to have to expect that a certain amount of light will be shed on your private life in the court and your family line that's what it is isha yourself as a liberally minded journalist who's a long talk but was there but was there any tension between you and just aside from oscar in this post no question about about remote control renovation in her apartment complex was already tensions between you and her because it didn't it didn't look very friendly well he is not a very agreeable lady and perhaps you can argue that i myself don't have very i'm not a very agreeable lady as well but i think there's also maybe personal for me because i'm a mother and i cannot imagine myself in that situation frankly you know flaws and i may be telling somebody that i don't keer your children died or that i need to sleep till mid day and i'm going to run for president and i want to change things
around in this country and this country is definitely flawed in many ways we have lots and lots of issues and you know one thing that gets to me is that i agree with her on many ideological points i think russia needs more competition i think russia needs more efficient brok i see i think russia needs to deal with corruption. what have you but i think this kind of personality the kind of attitude that she transmits these crowds all over there is that you know things you know when you talk about her character for example some some describe it as vibrant is this someone the government the kremlin could use this could be good for russian politics well there is a rumor in moscow that he may be a kremlin inspired project to. bring in more vibrancy into the russian presidential campaign which otherwise is fairly predictable i think you can place your bets on who is going to marry how was i mean obviously the campaign is ongoing and the elections are in march not not far away how is her campaign and her campaign is not doing that well she. has
a lot of media publicity but her negatives are very very low our latest polls put it at the wrong eighty percent of people if the percent of people polled saying that they would never vote for her to any circumstances and that is again a vital point to me because i think you know liberal ideas didn't get off to a good start in russia and that's a pity because i think this country needs a little bit. but by associating herself with them she threatens them even more would you vote yourself john. no. over my dead body while she probably wouldn't mind if people leave all of us want to watch the interview we are airing it now and see it also any time online at all to talk comix on the voice of the host of worlds apart thank you. and i thank you for joining us as well here in all of the international we are back in about half an hour. here's what people have been saying about redacted in that it was you know i was

mine is harder now. their collective legend and whether played a part where said when private sector survives just the words disappearing before day i ask for those prices. to their suppliers brand is a bit of a work first year raises goldfield but first we have like i mean sixty of them at myers grill. it was work and i got there well that's my grandpa grandma will see examples that are. made green you don't want. to. go. in every lady made. it jack
always had because you know now we've made the life that you'll say. going through. you won't want to hear that there's no water in the mine and soon would have to drown through water it would get it over your knees and. the horses would have to pull through the opponents from there and then they would lay to balfour's for tracks sometimes when they'd run out of traffic people here named were you know anywhere. there's nothing for him today and there have been all the young papers that turn to. alcohol. and. if it were someone would have
